Introduction

Dr. Steve Greene: Many of us have spent time in life trying to be good enough for something. Good enough for our parents, maybe at school, for a sports team, a love interest, a job, or maybe even a new job. Many people feel that they’re just not good enough for anything. You’ve heard that expression, “I’m just not worthy.” We have a little pity party, and we invite all of our friends. Many people stay away from church because they just don’t feel good enough for God. As old school as that sounds, could there be anyone left that still feels that way? That club is growing too. It’s pretty large. If we don’t feel good enough for God, it’s important that we do something to get to know Him and His character and be transformed by the renewal of our minds. Our friend at Charisma, a good friend of mine … I’m a great respecter of his work, Blake Healy is with us on this podcast. He joins us today to help us understand among other things the goodness of God. You probably remember Blake’s first book, The Veil, which many of our listeners loved, and I was sure one of them. I’ve read it a second time since I’ve interviewed him. I’m still mesmerized by it and I still pray for a similar gift. But aren’t we just like that? We’re gifted in some ways, but we want other people’s gifts, too. Gimme, gimme, gimme. But Blake’s got a very special gift, and you’ll hear more about it today. He’s here today to discuss his newest book, just recently released in early February. The title of the book is Profound Good: See God Through the Lens of His Love. What a promise that is, to be able to see God through the lens of His great love.

I’m always excited to talk to you because you always light me up and give me some good energy for the things of God. Let’s just start with a really simple question: Is there such a thing as good enough for God?

Blake Healy: It’s one of those things we can struggle with so much. I have a really specific story about this just for myself. I grew up a missionary’s kid and a pastor’s kid, so I knew the Lord from a very young age. I remember in my teen years starting to have this funny feeling … to some folks out there it might seem silly, but I would hear these testimonies from people who had been addicted to drugs, or in jail, these extreme testimonies where Jesus just left them there and their whole life was transformed. You had these radical testimonies of being saved. It may seem silly, but I had this feeling of inadequacy because my testimony is kinda boring. I’ve gone to church, and I’ve always loved the Lord. I’ve certainly made my mistakes, but I just have always really felt connected to God. One day, I was out by myself and I really felt the Holy Spirit talking. I was just thinking about this topic of, oh man, my testimony is kinda boring. As clear as day I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit say that the measure of your testimony is not how far you were on your journey back to me. The measure of your testimony is the magnitude of the love I have for you. Just that realization that “good enough” isn’t really what the equation is. It’s that His love has been reached out toward us. That has actually given us the capacity to have the possibility of growing, maturing and transforming into the people that you have called us to be. That’s kind of the way I see it.

·         Profound Good: See God Through the Lens of His Love

 

Dr. Steve Greene: How do we help people understand that they really can’t do anything except get close to God? How do we encourage people, even though they feel not worthy, to not think about their worthiness and just think about drawing close to God?

Blake Healy: To me, it’s really the reason that I wrote this book. Those of you who read The Veil you know that I have been seeing in the spirit from a very young age. I have been seeing angels, demons and other spiritual things. When I especially bring up seeing demons, people ask me is that hard, is that overwhelming? The truth is that those things don’t really bother me that much. The most painful, the most challenging thing that I see is just how much of God’s goodness is released on God’s people and how much of that goodness remains on the table, unclaimed or not picked up because we don’t know or don’t believe that it’s intended for us. The only way is by His grace, by his giving us the ability to take on the mind of Christ, to be transformed, to see that. It doesn’t mean that we don’t do anything, but it does mean that it’s impossible without Him.

·         Why This Common Misunderstanding of Demons is So Dangerous

 

Dr. Steve Greene: That is so good. This issue of pain that you just brought up, and you’ve had your own share of pain and suffering. Every listener to this podcast can identify with pain. How can you help us to understand the best response to pain in a way that would please God? How do we do that?

Blake Healy: There are a couple of chapters I include in this book on that subject. There is one story, and I’ll do a really brief version of it. I had these two friends when I was in school and they were similar age, similar kind of personality, and they actually had the same first name. They had really similar backgrounds, really rough backgrounds. They had a father who was pretty abusive, and a mother who is unstable, dealt with mental health issues. I saw these people as they moved into the rest of their lives and had gotten married, even though they had these similar backgrounds and had similar challenges at the beginning of their marriage just because they hadn’t really had a good picture of what it is to build a family … I watched their lives change quite a bit. I watched one friend really start to shut down and internalize and just not talk about the hard stuff that was going on. He was turning off and just trying to shut all of that stuff down. I’m sad to say that resulted in that person getting so penned up that he had an affair and did huge damage to his marriage. At that point, they started getting counseling, but that resulted in so much more pain from stuffing all of that down. This other friend I watched how, as soon as he started having serious problems in his marriage, he just began to find moms and dads in the spirit. He started finding counselors, finding people who could just help him build these tools and build toward working through this. I watched his life growing into something healthy and beautiful. The couple is both in ministry together, their relationship with their kids is wonderful. One of the things that tells me is that when it comes down to it, pain is inevitable. We’ll get hurt by something, we’ll bump into something and sometimes it’s our fault and sometimes it’s not. But even with these two people who are so similar in so many ways, the way they decided to handle it, they looked for help … how do I change this, how do I heal this? How do I let the Lord in on this? It’s the difference sometimes. I can tell you that there are people I see that, when I hear their testimony, it is so extreme and painful. There is a difficult history that they have had. I am shocked when I hear it because even when I look in the spirit, I don’t see any mark, any scar or any evidence of that crazy history just because they have so let the Lord heal them. On the flip side, I’ve seen people who have something that is relatively simple, maybe a pastor not saying hello to them in the hallway or someone making a joke where they felt like it was at their expense … I’ve seen that thing just grow and fester and swell into something that just affects their entire lives. Again, I just have to reiterate that it is so dependent upon how much we let the Lord in and then choose to respond to the transformation that He releases upon us.

Dr. Steve Greene: That’s good advice, but it’s really hard to walk it out, isn’t it?

Blake Healy:  It’s a process.

Dr. Steve Greene: Unfortunately, the best teacher is experience. We’re pressing in, we’re working at it. We don’t do well this time, we’ll do better next time. We just keep growing, and the best way to keep growing is through these trials and efforts. I wish that we could get through them quicker. Part of what God wants us to learn is through that experience of trying to get through the valley.

Let’s go a little deeper into your life in the spirit. Many people know your story, but not everyone. Maybe you can help describe what it means to see in the spirit so we will all be on the same page.

Blake Healy: As long back as I can remember, I’ve seen in the spirit. Not so different than from how I would see you if you stood in front of me. I’ve seen angels, demons and other spiritual things. Just to give a quick flyover of my history, and I detail this in The Veil, but 0 to 12 I wasn’t really in an environment of the gifts of the spirit. Even though I saw these things, I didn’t know they were the results of a gift. It wasn’t until I was 12 that I got into an environment that really taught about the gits of the spirit and the prophetic and all of these other things that finally gave me a grid for what I was experiencing. At this point, I really enjoyed inviting people into this gift, just seeing what’s going on in the spirit, what God is doing around us and what God is making available to us through His goodness.

Dr. Steve Greene: Do you have some spiritual sons and daughters that you’ve mentored and coached along the way that are now seeing in the spirit?

Blake Healy: Because I am part of the leadership team of the Bethel Atlanta School of Supernatural Ministry, which is the sister school of the one in Redding, California … I’ve been teaching here for 10 years now and I’ve had a lot of opportunities to coach some of our students that are hungry for this gift. I’ve had a wide variety of experiences, but enough that I know that it’s something that’s available for God’s children. I’ve had practice and push for it, and after a week of practicing started seeing things with their eyes. I’ve had other students who have pushed for it, practiced, been digging for it for three years and then finally after three years, boom, it just cracks open. But I’ve noticed for some, especially those who get breakthrough in this area, the ones who seem to get the most success are the ones who make the actual process of practicing and going after it just an act of intimacy and spending time with their heavenly father. That, to me, makes the journey feel like not such a long one.

Dr. Steve Greene: Do you just see this gift miraculously given away?

Blake Healy: I’ve seen numerous examples of people stewarding, just pursuing this gift for a time and that brings breakthrough. There has been a few, but I remember one specific one where I was hosting a workshop and two friends brought a woman to the workshop who had no grid for any of the spiritual gifts, and this was the first of this kind of meeting that she had ever been to. I taught for about 40 minutes and we went into the activation and practice time. The second she started practicing, immediately with her eyes she saw the ceiling split open and an angel come down. The angel was holding a scroll, and they opened up the scroll and it was this hand-written love note from the father to her. She was in tears reading it out loud as all of us just sat there. That is a dramatic example, but a beautiful one of where, in just one moment, it started happening.
